Eulalie Dupuy Bar Stools January 28, 2018 20:51:15
30" bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36" high counter then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter you will need a 30" stool.
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
